The impending implementation date, 25th May 2018, for the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, has seen the number of jobs available for lawyers in the UK increase by nearly a quarter in the first few months of this year.

The new GDPR is intended to give people more control over their personal data and companies will face stricter rules about how they store and use customer’s data..  Many companies, concerned that they may be in breach of the new rules, are seeking legal advice as to what they can do and are not able to do with customer’s information.

According to Chris Hickey, Chief Executive of Robert Walters’ UK, Middle East and Africa professional recruitment division, the demand for lawyers conversant with this area of law is “highly sought after and has applied to both in-house roles and positions within the private practice, as smaller businesses engage law firms to support chances to their processes to ensure compliance”.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding the implementation of GDPR, please call our lawyers on 0161 832 5000.
